Nothing Really Happens Til

February 3, 2023

Nothing really happens
Til something moves
Takes control.

Nothing really happens
In the morning bright
Til eyes open
Letting in streaming sunlight.

Nothing really happens
Til words are spoken
From a mouth open
Speaking things we need to know.

Nothing really happens
Til feet move
Heeding the mind’s signals
And control.

Nothing really happens
Til we let Mother Nature
Let nature have the reins
And we let go.

No More

No More ~ Photo by Patrice

No more
To
Tell

No more
To
See

Moving on
Not
Looking back

Nothing there

Nothing
Of
Quality.

I Haven’t Been

January 30, 2023
I Haven't Been ~ Photo by Patrice

I haven’t been
As close as I should have been
It seems life has dealt me
a heavy load
A load I think I need to carry. 

Please, if you could
Let me see where 
I can lay down
All that isn’t necessary. 

Giving me
The time, the space
To be the one
You need, I need to be
For an blessed eternity.

Our Best

We look to do our best
To see the best
And live a life of no unrest.

Sometimes it works
Sometimes we fail.

But in the end
we live, we love
We follow our destiny’s trail.

Time Bends

January 25, 2023
The Hours Drip Away ~ Photo by Patrice

Time bends

Hours drip away 
Different 
In all places of the world 
The universe 
Galaxies swirling. 

Time bends

Somewhere it’s tomorrow 
Today 
Is gone 
It’s already been. 

Then there’s 
Yesterday 
Can we go back 
See it happen, happen 
All over again? 

Time bends

I Don’t Know, I Haven’t Seen

I Don't Know, I Haven't Seen ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t know 
I haven’t seen
the truth 
The answer to all
That seems so mysterious
But
Serene. 

Let me look some more
Let me see
The beauty nestled
In this day
Unfolding gently
Beautiful and pristine.

My Heart Beats Soft

January 20, 2023

Mr. T and Me ~ Photo by us

Slowly hearing
My heart beat soft
Taking in the beauty
Beneath, within
And
Aloft.

No words spoken
No words need said
For all is explained
In a beat so soft
Inside
Instead.

Thunderous Clouds

January 19, 2023
Last used Jan. 19/23

Clouds are heavy overhead 
Thunder strikes with ominous dread
Rain sweeps down
From
Dark, black clouds.
~
Will the storm come
Wreck havoc

Before it disappears?
~
No one
But
God knows
Have no fear.

Weep

January 18, 2023
Weep ~ Patrice and Ceile

My heart cries
My soul does weep
The heavens have opened up
And
Took my precious one to keep
I cry
I weep and weep.

Wait for me
For 
I know when my time comes
I’ll seek to be with you there 
No more, no more
To
Weep.

In The Bowels Of Remorse

January 17, 2023
In The Bowels Of Remorse ~ Illustration by Patrice

In the bowels of remorse 
heartbreak
and
deep unrelenting
sadness 

Will strive
to come out
attempt to be happy
and
sane

Till that day
I’ll hear that sweet 
sad 
melancholy reframe

Playing
playing over and over 
and
over
over again. 
~ Patrice
